Homesteading the plains : toward a new history by Richard Edwards( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Homesteading the Plains offers a bold new look at the history of homesteading, overturning what for decades has been the orthodox scholarly view. The authors begin by noting the striking disparity between the public's perception of homesteading as a cherished part of our national narrative and most scholars' harshly negative and dismissive treatment. Homesteading the Plains reexamines old data and draws from newly available digitized records to reassess the current interpretation's four principal tenets: homesteading was a minor factor in farm formation, with most Western farmers purchasing their land; most homesteaders failed to prove up their claims; the homesteading process was rife with corruption and fraud; and homesteading caused Indian land dispossession. Using data instead of anecdotes and focusing mainly on the nineteenth century, Homesteading the Plainsdemonstrates that the first three tenets are wrong and the fourth only partially true. In short, the public's perception of homesteading is perhaps more accurate than the one scholars have constructed. Homesteading the Plainsprovides the basis for an understanding of homesteading that is startlingly different from current scholarly orthodoxy."--

Natives of a dry place : stories of Dakota before the oil boom by Richard Edwards( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the oil industry transformed western North Dakota, the natives of Stanley went about their normal, everyday lives. Postmen, farmers, housewives, doctors, and other residents of the bustling town held certain qualities close as they cultivated the cultural fabric of the Great Plains. For generations, inhabitants of this wheat-growing region developed a combination of resoluteness, steadfastness, devotion to the community, and ever-present modesty. Contrasting these values with the trials of the modern oil-boom community, author Richard Edwards examines the old town's virtues through the stories of those who built and sustained a community on the dry, open plains in the twentieth century. A deeply personal look at a small North Dakota town, Natives of a Dry Place focuses on a not-so-distant past and takes readers on a journey of reflection to a time before big oil. Edwards uses his experience as both a historian and an economist to delve into the overarching questions of what makes a community and how it survives during times of upheaval

Il volume si propone di introdurre lo studio dell'economia agli studenti del primo anno delle lauree triennali in scienze economiche e sociali. L'approccio seguito è quello di analizzare questioni e problemi - anche sotto la prospettiva storica dello sviluppo delle società capitalistiche e della connessa evoluzione del pensiero economico - con una metodologia semplice ed intuitiva, reinviando a corsi successivi per l'approfondimento formalizzato degli strumenti di analisi quantitativa. Lo studente viene posto di fronte ai problemi economici fondamentali dello scambio e della produzione, a livello micro e macro economico, ponendo attenzione anche al contesto istituzionale nel quale vengono definite le regole e le politiche che governano i sistemi economici
